After experiencing years of revenue volatility due to fluctuating demand from downstream manufacturing customers during the recession, the Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing industry is in a state of recovery. The manufacturing sector promptly began to rebuild, boosting demand for inorganic chemicals throughout 2010 and 2011. Moreover, demand for exports has remained relatively steady in recent years. In the next five years, the industry will expand as demand from downstream industries continues to increase.
This industry produces inorganic chemicals including titanium dioxide, chlor-alkali products and carbon black. Inorganic chemicals are mineral based, while organic chemicals are carbon based (see IBISWorld report 32519, Organic Chemical Manufacturing). Inorganic chemicals are mainly used as inputs in manufacturing and industrial processes. Inorganic chemicals are used as pigments and dyes (IBISWorld report 32513) or pesticides (IBISWorld report 32532) are not included in this industry.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
